Integrating Career Education in a Primary School
Proctor, Jenni
Australian Journal of Career Development, v14 n3 p13-17 Spr 2005
Career education concepts have been integrated into the curriculum at a primary school in Brisbane. Essential elements of relevant syllabus documents were identified and used as the basis of planned career education strategies. The existing curriculum was examined in the light of career competencies. All career-related learning that had already formed part of the education experience of the students was identified and grouped under the three main areas of competencies of the Australian Blueprint for Career Development. A three-year program of annual career days has been implemented, with a strong curriculum basis to enhance the children's understanding as they learn about different careers. By integrating career development competencies into the school curriculum, teachers, parents and students have embraced career education. (Contains 1 figure.)
